Mid-Prairie head coach Marc Pennington said North Cedar is an improved and dangerous team, especially playing them right out of the break.

“North Cedar is a much improved team, probably the most improved team in our league, so making a long trip up there the first game back from break is no easy task by any means, their kids are playing awful hard so we know we’ll have to play well up there,” Pennington said.
